The British Automata-master, Paul Spooner, is the focus of the article around the time of his solo show entitled A Day at the Butcher's.
I really appreciate this story for several reasons:
- Descriptions of Spooner's work
- Spooner's own thoughts about his creations
- Good money is being paid for good artwork
(Here's a currency converter for those not used to Pounds.)
- A bit of history about the Cabaret Mechanical Theatre (to whom all contemporary automata lovers owe a debt)
